    "See full documentation..." in the Unreal Engine always opens the Index-Page.

    As example for the box(brush): https://docs.unrealengine.com/DEU/En...=rich_tooltips
    (This site should open https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/...hes/index.html)

      Hey, thanks for reporting -- these links from the Editor should be working again.

    Just a suggestion, Forums / help needs to be sortable based on whether it is a Blueprint solution, or a C++ code solution.

        https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/...ine/index.html has deadlinks:

          Note: For me, the links work if I am logged into GitHub - otherwise, the UnrealEngine GitHub repository simply isn't available.

        In the nDisplay documentation, there's no mention of the fact that the nDisplay launcher and listener won't work properly if there are spaces in the filepath for the config or the application. It would be helpful to add this to that section, especially since the default "Unreal Projects" folder has a space in it! My team got hung up on this for a few days. Thanks!

          Thanks again for the feedback! I just submitted this fix in the Quick Start and the Launcher UI Reference. It'll be there next time we build and publish the site.

          Programming/UnrealArchitecture/Objects/Creation is out of date, suggesting the non existent ConstructObject.
          Should be replaced with info about the new overloaded NewObject template for this purpose (so your blueprint properties will be initialized)

          I had to find out how it worked from this post:

            Hey, we've updated that section -- we've removed the out of date Creation page, and fixed up the parent topic.
            Thank you for calling it to our attention!

          Hello there! I was looking up the documentation for the Unreal Engine Integration for Shotgun, but it seems like that wasn’t migrated over to the new UE4 docs site. Do you know what may have happened? Who can I talk to about getting the documentation back online?

          Here’s the link: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/...gun/index.html

          There’s no Shotgun documentation there — just a link to getting started with Unreal Engine 4.9, and other beginner links, with no mention of Shotgun.

          I checked Github (https://github.com/ue4plugins/tk-config-unreal) and it’s still linking to https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/...todesk-Shotgun, which redirects to the URL above.

          As far as I can tell, there’s no longer any publicly accessible documentation for the Unreal Engine integration for Shotgun. I work on the Shotgun team and I have customers asking about the Unreal Engine integration, and this is a huge blocker for us. Any idea what may have happened?

          Thanks in advance!

          Hey, thanks for the feedback. Those docs are still there at the same place in the hierarchy, but the URL changed a bit. Try:
          https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/...gun/index.html

          We're setting up a bunch of redirects from old URLs to new URLs to handle cases like this, but they're not all in place yet.
          It seems like the Unreal Engine Integration for Shotgun is broken in version 4.22, the shotgun tap appears and the plugin load successfully with only the ability to load assets from shotgun but we can not publish asset or shots from sequencer, it's working just fine in 4.20 , also the documentation is outdated for the Unreal Engine Integration for Shotgun, is it something that Epic is planning to fix the integration code on GitHub ?, it's very handy for a lot of studios in the animation industry.

            The URL for the integration changed in a recent version of UE4. It's now at
            https://github.com/ue4plugins/tk-config-unreal.git
            Is it possible you're still using the old GitHub URL at github.com/shotgunsoftware?
            Also, what did you find that's outdated in that documentation?

          You're looking for this page:
          https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/...ing/index.html
          I assume.
          Where did you find that other link?

            I assume others have reported this, becasue I can not be the only one for whom externil links don't work anymore. The whole documentation site is broken. Any link you get from google or even from your own search engine lands you on the index page.
            Sample: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/.../12/index.html

              It's sucks as like Epic. There are no full examples for C++ code

                Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your frustration, but I find that the UE4 ecosystem provides a wealth information about almost every facet of the Unreal Engine - including C++. I don't know what you're looking for, but if I were looking for C++ examples, I might start with:

                UE4 Documentation
                First Person Shooter Tutorial (C++)
                https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/...ter/index.html

                Tom Looman
                Unreal Engine 4 C++ Multiplayer Survival Game
                https://www.tomlooman.com/survival-sample-game-for-ue4/

                If you would provide details about what you feel is missing, I can at least file a bug that we can add to our backlog to triage against other documentation requests.

              The whole "AI" section is now replaced by "ArtificialIntelligence" section, but many active pages still link to old URLs.
              And those old pages can still be searched, but cannot be opened.

              It looks like that any AI or behavior tree article you cannot open can be viewed by replacing "AI" with "ArtificialIntelligence"

              Please fix the link. Thanks!
